Langue: Anglais

Remark: Next time August 14 - 27, 2024


Every 2 years


To provide an introduction into the field of nonlinear spectroscopy, and focus in particular on linear and nonlinear light scattering



nonlinear optics, spectroscopy, group theory, interfaces

Learning Prerequisites

Important concepts to start the course

The level will be that of a masters' student in physics or chemistry. It is necessary to have some understanding of quantum physics/chemistry, and linear optics/spectroscopy. We will very briefly review some of the quantum chemistry and linear light/matter interaction, but it will be understood that students are familiar with the concepts.

Learning Outcomes

  • Interpret linear spectroscopy and nonlinear spectroscopy experiments
  • Perform nonlinear optical analysis
  • Use group theory
